Recent news that Texas school districts are distributing DNA kits to parents has raised some serious hackles. Our Poor Idiot Governor Greg Abbott signed a law mandating that DNA kits be made available after the slaughter of 19 students and 2 teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.
Some parents seem strangely dissatisfied with the law passed in spring 2021 requiring the Texas Education Agency to give inkless in-home fingerprint and DNA identification cards to each public school system in Texas. But the GOP seems to be pleased that the lifeless battered corpses of school children will be more easily identified after the inevitable next school massacre. Why bother with proactive measures to reduce gun violence in schools and elsewhere when you can just make it easier to clean up the mess afterwards?
